Subject Re: wsdl2java -ss (server-side) classes required for complex object serialization?
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2008 04:17:42 GMT
you can do two types of service development with Axis2.
1. Contract first
     This is what you currently doing. you start with a wsdl file (contract)
and generate the java code for this.
2. Code first approach
     you first write the service classes and then generates the wsdl and
service from those classes.

So I think what you ask for the second option. This article may help you

And also see the Axis2 documentation.
